Geno Smith – Seattle Seahawks
Roster % – ESPN 32% / Yahoo 36% / Sleeper 39%

I must admit Geno Smith has been a pleasant surprise early this season. Smith gets on the list again this week with another impressive performance against the New Orleans Saints. Smith’s stat line for the week was 16/25, 268 passing yards with three touchdowns. Through five weeks Smith has shown he is a capable quarterback for fantasy football and should be an add this week.

Zach Wilson – New York Jets
Roster % – ESPN 14% / Yahoo 14% / Sleeper 26%

Zach Wilson is another good QB add for the week. He should be getting back to full health and up to game speed now. Had another solid game going 14-21 with 210 passing yards and a rushing touchdown. With solid weapons around him, Wilson could take a step forward.

Mike Boone – Denver Broncos
Roster % – ESPN 26.9% / Yahoo 36% / Sleeper 43%

With starting running back Cordarelle Patterson on IR for a few weeks, it’s Tyler Allgeier’s time to shine. Allgeier is in line for an increased opportunity in an offense that needs a solid running game to succeed. Allgeier was able to get 13 Carries for 45 yards in his recent matchup against a tough Tampa Bay defense.

Ken Walker III – Seattle Seahawks
Roster % – ESPN 47.7% / Yahoo 44% / Sleeper 59%

Another Seahawk makes the list this week with an unfortunate injury to a teammate. Rashard Penny was injured in week five and could be out for a while. Ken Walker III should take over the backfield and should be a must-add this week. Walker III had eight carries for 88 rush yards and a touchdown. With increased opportunity, Walker III should be a good option going forward.

Tyler Allgeier – Atlanta Falcons
Roster % – ESPN 44% / Yahoo 56% / Sleeper 66%

With starting running back Cordarelle Patterson on IR for a few weeks, it’s Tyler Allgeier’s time to shine. Allgeier is in line for an increased opportunity in an offense that needs a solid running game to succeed. Allgeier was able to get 13 Carries for 45 yards in his recent matchup against a tough Tampa Bay defense.

Alec Pierce – Indianapolis Colts
Roster % – ESPN 8.6% / Yahoo 8% / Sleeper 20%

Eight catches on nine targets for 88 yards is something to monitor on a struggling offense. Pierce can be a good addition due to his increased target share. Each week the colts have implemented Pierce in the offense.

Rondale Moore – Arizona Cardinals
Roster % – ESPN 20% / Yahoo 18% / Sleeper 37%

Rondale Moore had a good week. Coming back from his early injury in the season with seven catches for 68 yards. Moore has a unique skill set and could be a sleeper waiver addition to this offense.

Darius Slayton – New York Giants
Roster % – ESPN .2% / Yahoo 0% / Sleeper 2%

Darius Slayton is often the forgotten man in this New York Giants offense. Slayton has battled with consistency and staying healthy in his career. With the uncertainty of the health of all the Giants receivers, Slayton is another waiver wire target to monitor.

Devin Duvernay – Baltimore Ravens
Roster % – ESPN 24% / Yahoo 62% / Sleeper 58%

As a Ravens fan, I love the rise of Duvernay’s development and play this season. He has taken advantage of every opportunity given in an offense that’s not geared to have high passing volume. With Rashod Bateman battling injuries, Duvernay can be a good flex option. With receiving and rushing upside, Duvernay is a must-add this week.

Marvin Jones – Jacksonville Jaguars
Roster % – ESPN 29.8% / Yahoo 5% / Sleeper 13%

It seems like it’s always around this time of the season that Marvin Jones gets ramped up. Back-to-back weeks of solid targets can only increase opportunity. Something to look into if you need WR help.

Michael Gallup – Dallas Cowboys
Roster % – ESPN 51% / Yahoo 51% / Sleeper 62%

Michael Gallup is getting back to his full health after his injury from last season. Had a solid week five with four catches and 44 receiving yards. Gallup should get better as the season progresses. If he’s available I would add him to see how he recovers.

George Pickens – Pittsburgh Steelers
Roster % – ESPN 50.6% / Yahoo 55% / Sleeper 71%

George Pickens has made a case to be added these last weeks. Leading the team in receptions and yards shows that he may be the focus of this offense. Kenny Pickett is the QB for the Steelers going forward so hopefully, Pickens can continue to stack good weeks.

Jakobi Meyers – New England Patriots
Roster % – ESPN 64.6% / Yahoo 48% / Sleeper 61%

Jakobi Meyers makes a big comeback from injury with a good week. The only receiving option on the Patriots offense is Meyers. With seven catches, 111 receiving yards, and a touchdown Meyers is a good add off of the waiver wire if available.

Evan Engram – Jacksonville Jaguars
Roster % – ESPN 20.2% / Yahoo 24% / Sleeper 26%

Believe it or not, Engram has been solid for your fantasy teams. With the tight end position if you don’t get one of the top guys it’s best to stream. Engram is a good waiver pickup to stream for the time being. He gets good targets and should have some solid weeks ahead.

Taysom Hill – New Orleans Saints
Roster % – ESPN 11% / Yahoo 29% / Sleeper 24%

Mr. “Swiss army knife” makes the list due to his boom upside in fantasy. Hill can line up all over the offense and with Jameis Winston out with injury, Hill can have a sneaky upside in any matchup. To be honest, Hill is a good addition to any manager needing a boost at their TE position.
